Hiya,

I have upgraded the forum to the latest and greatest.

You will notice a few changes when you post but nothing drastic.

However I did cock things up a bit  (boo - the whistling emoticon has gone)

The Article System somehow lost all its articles, I have a DB backup from before the upgrade so I might manually add them back in.
None of the skins were compatible so they have gone. I will add some more.
The Board Panel at the top has gone.
The Members Online Today bit has gone as well.
Oh and Statistics as well!

Will see what I can do about adding them back.

Have put back in the Map link at the top right. That has been improved as it is now categorized and you can choose to just show what you want , i,e Tavernas.

Stick with me and we should have it back to normal (or better)

Cheers,

Paul

Why are pirates called pirates?

Couple of new skins have been added, you can use the drop-down at the bottom to switch between them
Board panel is back.
Members online is back.
Statistics back too (though the vital emoticon stats are not working)

I'll see what other useful things I can add.

Paul

Hate to be finicky but the Youth Hostel and Lending Library locations are incorrect on the map.

If instead of going straight on at the cross roads up where it is currently located on the map you take the right and go over the river and keep left on that road and there is a little dirt track leading up to 3 buildings, this is the Youth Hostel and the Lending Library is the building a little bit further up the road from the hostel on the left.
What to do if you're trapped with no hope of rescue:...
Consider how lucky you are that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you which is more likely given your current circumstances, consider how lucky you are that it won't be bothering you much longer!

Yep you are absolutely right. Well done, the first person to spot the deliberate mistake  

I will update it this evening.

Thanks,

I understand that all maps of Crete contain deliberate mistakes for security reasons. Perhaps you were just complying with their law

I see that the Article System is empty again Paul, can you put some headings in there, Apartments, Hotels, Tavernas, Bars etc. and we can start to fill it up again.

Sorry Paul, just read your original posting, you already know.    
How about adding Taxi links and car hire?
